Beyond the Carta materials with their maps and inscriptions, I'm very pleased with some of the other ancient Near East materials (think "linguistic and contextual material necessary to historical-critical interpretation of the Bible") Logos has in pre-pub.

These looks great.

Harlot or Holy Woman? A Study of Hebrew Qedešah 

Biblical Aramaic: A Reader & Handbook

An Introduction to Ugaritic

A Concise Lexicon of Late Biblical Hebrew: Linguistic Innovations in the Writings of the Second Temple Period

I still hold out hope to one day see the (free online!) Chicago Assyrian Dictionary (previously requested here) and Tawil's Akkadian Lexical Companion for Biblical Hebrew (paper now available for $43 instead of $80.)

Thank you, Ben. Several I had missed.

I'm still hoping to get lucky on a price more akin to series' full-set comment! "An attractive price"

Holy buckets! Yeah, I'll stick with the legally free pdfs of the CAD, I guess.

Ben:

I've been reading: https://www.logos.com/product/190224/womens-divination-in-biblical-literature-prophecy-necromancy-and-other-arts-of-knowledge?ssi=0 

The author defines divination broadly (touching the divine) ... quite interesting, once you start reading the hebrew carefully. She hasn't crossed paths yet with Bird (above). Bird was one of the NRSV translators. I'm tempted to get Bird's kindle at $40 ... doubts on many of these prepubs passing go.

Again, thanks.

I am also very pleased that Gzella’s book on the history of the Aramaic language is “in production”: https://www.logos.com/product/196136/aramaic-a-history-of-the-first-world-language 

I have placed a pre-order even though I already have the Dutch edition (2017) in dead tree format.
